Mystery Cat and His Mix Tape
Christian Petersen is a British photographer, illustrator, and graphic designer currently residing in Seattle, Washington. He is co-founder of the graphic and web design company Dumb Eyes. In 2007, he won the "Erotic Photographer of the Year" award in England.
Christian Petersen, also known as Mystery Cat, photographs women employing his unique eye for clever geometric and symmetrical framing. The minimal, yet dramatic use of color in his work grab at the eye in the otherwise dark and muted tones dominating his images.
His work is sexy, mysterious, and clever. His romantic world is that of urban nymphs and curious sex kittens.
Below are some of Christian Petersen's photographs. You can view many, many more (including nudes) at his Mystery Cat flickr page.
